Introduction to the Biology of Marine Life (Paperback) (John F. Morrissey & James L. Sumich & Deanna R.
About this item
Morrissey, Sumich, and Pinkard-Meier introduce undergraduate students to marine organisms, the environment they live in, and the challenges they face as the marine environment changes. They assume no previous background in marine biology, but say that some exposure to the basic concepts of biology would be helpful. Using selected groups of marine organisms, they discuss biological principles and processes that are basic to all forms of life in the sea, and build on those basics with information on taxonomy, evolution, ecology, behavior, and physiology. For this edition, they have moved information on ocean chemistry and oceanography to the new chapter Physical and Chemical Oceanography, and generally updated and revised the material throughout.
